She is a bad teacher. Her teaching style doesn't fit the majority of people, class is extremely boring, has a "tutoring time" but it is just sitting in her room with textbooks, and doesn't care much about her student's futures. If she has a grudge against you, you will not be respected by her in her class. She even tells the "bad" kids to leave her classroom the second they walk in, without giving them a chance. She gives you very little time to do class work, and are worth a lot. Transfer.

A very knowledgeable teacher but gives quite a high amount of work. A lot of the time you might need to read the textbook so that you understand what you're learning in class. Her chapter tests are hard and you should always study and prepare for her surprise quizzes. If you struggle, there's an after-school class in her room where you can get help. As long as you study and pay attention in her class, it's easy to pass.

I understand that many people don't like her. I personally don't like her. Although smart, she fails to deliver knowledge in an interesting or captivating manor. She spends most of her time talking about "life lessons" in an almost insulting manor. Her teaching does not suit many people and I would not recommend taking her class or hiring her. I DO recommend transferring out as soon as possible.

Knetch is an okay teacher, really strict, n extremely hard.... I get decent grades in her classes. Personally my advice is not to annoy her n do well in her class then you can start slacking off.

She very unclear. She would give you a worksheet for homework, and won't explain it. She won't tell you what to do with it in till last minute. Change your schedule, its worth it.

Ms. Knecht is an effective teacher. I love her because she is so stern to the students. She is very fair with students as well. Justice is served in her class. AND her learning techniques are useful.

Ms. Knecht is a tough teacher. She can be strict most of the time during class. Her quizzes are hard. She'll be giving only a limited amount of time to finish them. Most people say she's mean, but she isn't, she can be when she gets cranky in the morning, but other than that, she's really nice during lunchtime at tutoring. She's willing to sacrafice her lunch time for YOU if you don't get anything. Other than that, I did learn a lot from her. If you have her, make sure you do homework!

She is somewhat good and somewhat bad. Her problem is her ego, she takes pride in flunking kids, and makes A students feel like they are superior.
